How to Apply
Operation Fuel partners with 58 agencies across the state to provide low-income families with year-round emergency energy assistance. As a nonprofit organization, Operation Fuel raises funds for energy assistance through individuals, corporations, and foundations. These funds are distributed as emergency energy assistance grants to qualified applicants who have applied at one of our partner agencies.
In order to apply for an Operation Fuel utility or deliverable fuel grant, you must submit an application through our online portal or through one of our partner agencies also known as fuel banks.
